Kaylee Baldwin Book Spotlight The One and Only Ivan

Also, Applegate was brilliant at taking something really familiar, and making it feel new and different. The themes of this book are very common in middle grade novels: unlikely friendships, unlocking your potential, and pushing through when things get difficult. But telling it this way made those themes feel fresh, fun, and unique.

Instead, Ivan thinks about TV shows hes seen and about his friends Stella, an elderly elephant, and Bob, a stray dog. But mostly Ivan thinks about art and how to capture the taste of a mango or the sound of leaves with color and a well-placed line.

Book Spotlight: The One and Only Ivan

The voice.Applegate gives Ivan this amazing voice, and found myself cheering for Ivan (and crying for him a few times as well.) Amazingly, Applegate somehow wrote this in a way that made me connect with a gorilla. That is talent, friends.

I dont even know why I picked this book up off the shelf at my library. First of all, its about animals, andI dont do well with animals. Second of all, its from the point of view of a gorilla, which also is not my thing.

Heres the blurb:Ivan is an easygoing gorilla. Living at the Exit 8 Big Top Mall and Video Arcade, he has grown accustomed to humans watching him through the glass walls of his domain. He rarely misses his life in the jungle. In fact, he hardly ever thinks about it at all.
